Keywords: Religious mania | Wisdom | Truth | Concern about oneself | Hermeneutics of the Subject

In my explanations in connection with the theme of human search of truth and love of truth, I reconstruct the history of a complementarity. First of all I analyse the bold hypothesis of Giorgio Collis, that religious mania is the source of wisdomand, at the same time, renders possible the birth of philosophy.In connection with the significance of the concept Philosophy I evaluate, with the support of an appeal to the stoical spiritual meditation of wisdom and show that to philosophize means to learn living and loving to grant friendship. As a result I compare two contrary perspectives, insofar as I proceed together with Nietzscheand Foucault on the trail concerning truth and wisdom. In a following step I analyse Michel Foucaults model for an Ethic and Aesthetic of Human Existence. To philosophize for him, means to strive for the freedom and truth of the subject - in the form of concern about oneself.Finally I give insights into a past world: the cavern of the forgotten dreams and the shamanistic cosmos are inseparably connected with human search after truth - and moreover as the Big Bang of human creativity a significant part of his search for Wisdom and Spirituality. -
